I'm not against immigration. I am one myself... My point is most European wouldn't have the stamina to go through 10y backlog as you guys do.
It is already seen by many EU citizens as a quality life downgrade to move to US. The incremental gain and career growth is not worth it. So only certain groups would accept to survive this 10y backlog.
Now the solution is not to mistreating everyone poorly but rather to improve the system so that those who receive a GC, receive it in 2years and not in 10+...
I dont have exact numbers but what's the expected outcome of 1044 for Indians and for others?
One can assume that it will only marginally reduce the waiting line for Indians, maybe 12-15y instead of current 15+... and it will push everybody else to the same 15y in place of current 2-3y .... isn't a no win situation ? Even as Indian I wouldn't support it. I'd rather fight for a better solution for myself and for others...
Yes we do. The reason being some of us lack self belief. We think that we can’t make it big in India. Let me tell you that we can. We are more than capable. Besides, if US wants to educate us well and then let us go back to our country to innovate and make our country better, then why not! 😄
We have two types of people on blind. One who pretends not to care about GC, but internally does care about GC and the second, do care about GC.
There are 2 types of reactions that people exhibit for this issue: 1) pretend like I don't care about it or live in delusion that my h1 will always renew and even with mounting evidence keep a false hope. 2) shit their pants.
A good reaction is between 1 and 2. The other thing is these folks, when you tell them that they can help themselves if they advocate for themselves, usually expect someone else to advocate for them.
These same folks think that they are on h1, so they can't reach out to lawmakers (false) or that reaching out somehow jeopardizes their paperwork (false). They also can't see that the folks who are pushing for the bill are all folks like them on h1 - the only difference is that they care about their family that the volunteer. These folks who are hesitant do care about themselves and their family too, but feel that "let someone else do the work, I will sit and enjoy the fruits of labor". 😀
I have been in enough townhalls. I have seen undocumented show up. With constant fear of deportation, losing their day's wage, they still show up. Our folks on the other hand, are worried (while they are legal and have status).
If you think the issue is important, volunteer and donate (whatever works for you). Don't pretend your are helpless. So many of RoW folks who oppose the bill are like you, but they are reaching out to lawmakers and shitting on the only bill that helps you.
If you don't help yourself, no one is coming to help you.
That’s what he wants you to think. Ever since he came to office, he has done everything in his power to cut down on legal immigration (even though he says he supports it). If you don’t believe me, check out the stats for yourself.
